Kids Montessori Apron with free printable pattern
Dear my crafty friends,
Usually, I only do doll printable patterns but because of many requests for this apron so I give it a try. In the pattern, I include 3 sizes S, M, L for kids 3-8 years old, The pattern is very simple and you can modify the length of the apron to match your kid's height by add couple inches on the bottom of the pattern. this project takes me less than 30 min and what I loved the most about this apron is the Velcro at the waist and neck strap make it easily slides overhead so they can manage this apron independently!
I hope you enjoy this tutorial (^_^)
PS. the printable patterns are at the bottom of the page!
